The Shippon is a terraced cottage, one of a group in Polyphant near Launceston. The cottage has a double room and a room with bunks, along with a shower room, kitchen with dining area and sitting room, along with a shared external utility, and a shared conservatory with coffee-making facilities in the spacious grounds. The cottage has off road parking for one car. The Shippon is well placed to enjoy walking on Bodmin Moor, surfing on the North Cornwall coast, or cycling along the Camel Trail.

From the Cornish, meaning 'Frog Pool', Polyphant is close to the convergence of the River Inny and Penpont Water and is surrounded by miles of stunning countryside. Cornwall is a very temperate region of the UK and the beaches are very popular for surfing and other water-sports. The beaches of the north coast are just 14 miles away and also bring you into close proximity to attractions such as the world-famous Eden Project and the Victorian discovery, the Lost Gardens of Heligan. A few miles west of Polyphant, you can take in the rugged beauty of Bodmin Moor with its granite tors, walking opportunities and secluded moor-land villages. The Camel Route, a famous cycling and walking trail is just minutes from here.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Shippon, the cottage was all we needed and was comfortable. The owners were very friendly but not intrusive, and our children really enjoyed playing in the large garden - the views are beautiful! They also liked seeing the Shetland ponies across the road! It is in a very quiet location but less than ten minutes from Launceston. Worth every penny!"
